So we just completed a fun little project for some old friends that turned out to be a rather funny story…
About 2 weeks ago, an old friend, Matt, sent us a message through our Etsy shop where he asked about getting a custom designed print to give his wife for their five year anniversary. Their wedding being a bit blurry by now, it was hard to believe that it had already been five years. While it was great just to hear from our old friend, we were even more excited to help him with this cool little project as well. So as we were hashing out what we wanted to use for his gift (being foodies, we decided on the names of the restaurants at which they had memorable meals) – I then got a Facebook message from Amy (Matt’s wife) asking for a custom piece to give Matt for their Anniversary. My first reaction was similar to that of: “Oh, s**t, what if they want the same thing… who’s bubble do I have to burst?” Then, I calmly let her lead the way, which worked out great as she decided to go with one of our vintage book page designs featuring their wedding song – “Happy Everafter in Your Eyes” by Ben Harper – so I was immediately subdued in my freak out and decided this is going to actually work out.
So, to make it even more freaky Friday, they both even went so far as to order their final designs as 18×24 canvases. Two people couldn’t be any more perfect for eachother… I mean, really… as they say great minds think a like and I know they got a little chuckle when they exchanged gifts realizing that they had essentially thought of the same exact gift (I know this because, as expected, I got an email to let me know how funny it was). Adorbs.
